Attention Future Leaders and Scholars in Entrepreneurship

The 2013 USASBE Doctoral Consortium will take place at the annual conference in San Francisco beginning on January 10. A distinguished group of up to 17 Ph.D. students will be selected for participation in the consortium. We are looking for emerging entrepreneurship scholars and who will be pursuing academic careers in entrepreneurship. Only one applicant per university will be accepted. The consortium will feature leading faculty in the discipline, and will focus upon both research and pedagogical issues as the student prepares for a career of thought leadership, publication, teaching, curriculum development and disciplinary advancement. Don’t miss this opportunity for career enhancement and networking with senior scholars and leaders in the field.

Apply today and qualify for a scholarship covering the cost of the Consortium, the full USASBE conference and three nights of hotel costs. A limited number of slots are available, so candidates are encouraged to apply early. The deadline is October 22, 2012. See selection criteria for what is needed to qualify for acceptance to the consortium and eligibility for scholarships.



The design of this Doctoral Consortium includes innovative elements for both research and teaching entrepreneurship. The Consortium focuses on the practical as well as conceptual content. The close interaction with experienced professors is designed to create potential long-term friendships and mentoring relationships. The USASBE doctoral consortium is unique from other entrepreneurship consortia both in its range of content and the style in which it is conducted, and provide distinct value to Ph.D. students who are passionate about a scholarly career in entrepreneurship.
